Piazza Navona is one of the largest and most spectacular squares of Baroque Rome and traces the size and shape of the ancient roman stadium of Domitian.
In this beautiful square there are three fountains: the lateral ones, the "Fountain of Neptune, also called the Calderoni" and "Fountain of the Moor" designed by Giacomo della Porta, while the central one, the "Fountain of the Rivers" created by Bernini between 1648 and 1651 AD.
The Church of St. Agnes in Agony, built by Borromini, has a Baroque style. Visiting times for the church are:
Weekdays from 9.30 a.m. to 12.30 p.m. and from 3.30 p.m. to 7.00 p.m.
Sundays and Holidays from 9.00 to 1.00 p.m. and from 4.00 p.m. to 8.00 p.m. 
From Piazza Navona you can easily walk to Piazza Sant'Apollinare, dominated by an amazing panoramic tower, and then, at the bottom of Via Zanardelli, you can find the Church of St. Augustine, containing a famous fresco by Raphael, "the Prophet Isaiah", and a beautiful Madonna by Caravaggio, "the Madonna of the Pilgrims or Loreto".
Going on with this walk you reach the Church of St. Louis of the French, and the Palazzo Madama, the sumptuous residence of the Medici in Rome and now the seat of Senate of the Italian Republic.
Also from Piazza Navona you can reach the Vicolo della Pace with the beautiful Church of Santa Maria della Pace, whose cloister was designed by Bramante.
Another famous street is Via dei Coronari full of antique shops.
